A Word of Thanks: 2012 Shooze Cruise

Thank you to these individuals, organizations, and companies for their generous donations of time, materials, and talent:

The 2012 Shooze Cruise, our most successful yet, raised $16,356. We had 226 attendees and collected 272 pairs of casual and business shoes, which have all been distributed to our guests. Even Mother Nature cooperated, giving us clear skies until we returned to the dock. We want to thank our sponsors, raffle donors, Host Committee members, and the band Evolfo Doofeht from Berklee College of Music for making the event such a success. The cruise is possible because of their efforts and your generous support.
